I’ve added an audio page to my main website so that readers have the option to listen to me talk about specific topics. This particular gallery-style page had two options: You can listen via an in-page audio player without having to download. Or, you can download the MP3 to your computer, iPod, or even burn them to a CD to listen to while you’re driving.
The two topics I started with were “about Jeff” which tells specifically how I work with different types of clients, and a brief overview of modern college in the U.S. (e.g., how many students graduate each year, U.S. graduation rates). I’m also working on setting up an audio player for the blog, but the one at the main site is much better than what I’ve found so far.
Being able to hear me talk about these issues really brings a different dimension, I think, to my work. I’ve gotten good feedback from three parents already, and one even burned the first two MP3s to a CD so she could listen to it while driving. Please let me know if you have any problems when trying to listen.
